Shortly after I finished my Arkham Asylum and Arkham City Harley statues, the amazing SKB Studios revealed his latest: Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister from Game of Thrones. As usual, SKB’s sculpt is spot-on! His Tyrion was a thing of beauty. Normally, I’d be happy to admire such things from afar, as I don’t delve into “realistic” pieces too often. But then I was struck with a great idea. Tyrion would make a great anniversary present for the Violist! And thus it would be.
After assembly, I had only to apply paint. I had fun doing so, as this project allowed me the opportunity to play with layers and lots of dry-brushing, creating effects I don’t normally get to use with animated pieces. Everything you see (except for the base) features multiple colors layered to create depth and texture.
Not counting the base, Tyrion stands approximately 11.5 inches.
